Introduction To Simple Maya Cloth Sim

Important Intro

This course is different in the way that the cloth simulation introduction is short and concentated. You do not need to know a whole lot of maya to finish this course and can easily come from an animation background, just interested in spicing up the showreel. Its a lecture where you first open op an animation scene looks at the challenge ahead then look at the rig and see how you can apply your own cloth to a rig. Then you continue to update the rig in the animation scene and simulate the cloth. Finally we do a round of shot sculpting and caching out our geometry.

Want to spice up your animation scene?

In this simple tutorial you are taken through how I add a newly modelled coat to my character. How I skin it certain joint and then update my animation file so i can later on simulate it with maya's native cloth solver.


Only for the absolut beginner

This tutorial is for someone who has never done any simulation before. Its a brief introduction to a major part of the cg pipeline. Keep in mind that doing cloth simulation is somehing people spend years to learn so you will have to practice your skills.

What Can You Do when you are done?

You will be able to approach your own shots and error check a simulation beucase you have learned how to approach the most common mistakes people do in cloth simulation.

It will add the icing on the cake for that portfolio piece.

Having a simulated character shows that you are committed to take your shot as far as possible, that you have understood the workflow of dealing with cloth. Not only if you are an animator but also

What Will Be Provided

What If I Want To Use My Own Character? 

As in all courses you are most welcome to use your own character at any time. It is actually recommended. There is plenty to learn for the person who wishes to improve their skills drastically.
